It’s tough for many NBA players to make ends meet — particularly with no game checks coming during the lockout.
That lack of incoming finances led to a drastic cutback at Memphis guard Tony Allen’s house during Halloween.
Instead of giving trick-or-treaters candy during a visit to his house, Allen provided them with beef and chicken Ramen noodles.
“Sorry kids it’s a lockout no candy!!,” Allen tweeted. ”Got a chicken and beef,::: Ramen noodles.”
According to Basketball-Reference.com, Allen made $3 million last year for the Grizzlies. During the course of his seven-season NBA career, he has pocketed $12,777,037
